Welcome to Part 2 of project Pimp My Astra they say your eye’s are the windows to your soul is but if you looked into Zippy’s eye’s you would find a rather cloudy soul.
Zippy being 10 yrs old is suffering the usual head light problems that are the bane of anyone’s existence if their car has plastic head light lenses and lets face it what car doesn’t these days.
Zippy’s were rather cloudy which in turn were making them a little dull at night but since at this time there are no funds for new head lights (actually no funds for anything just yet) in the Project Pimp My Astra budget.
I came across this Turtle wax Headlight Lens Restorer kit at my local Supercheap Auto and for $30 decided to give it a go and see how good it works.
After reading the box it promises to be a rather easy process to do, the kit comes with a bottle of lens clarifying compound, a bottle of spray lube, some rubbing pads and small sachet of sealant.
Now i was going to write a detailed step by step guide to the process but really it’s not that interesting, just involves rubbing, rubbing and more rubbing the whole time using the lube to keep everything wet.
The kit is rather easy to use and you just follow the instructions on the box, the pads are numbered level 1 to 4 and are different colours so apart from doing it for you I don’t think they could have made it easier.
Now when you look at the finished pic there are still parts of the lights that aren’t perfect, it really needs another going over I just wasn’t able to do a proper job with my knee like it is so I will give it another go over and see if i can clear the rest up.
It has made a big difference at night the headlights do seem to look a little brighter than what they are.
This also means that the headlights look and work better and i can wait til later on the project for new lights.
Stay tuned for part 3 of Project Pimp my Astra.
